Preventative Pet Care in Minneapolis
Extending the Longevity of Your Pet’s Life
Pets today are able to live longer and healthier lives with the help of vaccines which can protect them from deadly infectious diseases. Some vaccines are considered “core” and should be administered to all pets, and other vaccines are recommended based on their risk of exposure to disease. Vaccine recommendations can also change throughout a pet’s life, as their lifestyle, overall health, and other variables may change. We understand that each pet is different, and that no single vaccine program will be ideal for every pet we see.
Blue Cross Animal Hospital encourages annual heartworm tests to check for Heartworm Disease, which is transmitted by mosquitoes. Our doctors recommend owners be proactive by using heartworm preventative, which also protects against some intestinal parasites. We carry Heartgard Plus and Sentinel on-site. We also carry veterinary-approved flea and tick prevention ( Frontline Plus, Nexgard, and Vectra 3D) to help keep your pet protected against fleas and ticks. Our goal is to provide the best advice to keep your pet healthy. Call us today to set up an appointment to discuss your pet’s health needs.
